Prevención de la trombosis venosa profunda (TVP) y embolismo pulmonar - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si está inmóvil durante un periodo prolongado debido a una cirugía, embarazo, enfermedad o viaje, puede estar en riesgo de desarrollar una trombosis venosa profunda o TVP. La cual es una afección en donde se forma un coágulo de sangre en una vena profunda del cuerpo, normalmente en las piernas. A diferencia de las arterias, que dependen del corazón para que haga circular sangre a través de ellas, las venas transportan sangre con la ayuda de contracciones musculares mientras unos de mueve o camina. Las venas también tienen válvulas que evitan que la sangre fluya en sentido contrario y se acumulen en los brazos y piernas. Cuando está inmóvil durante un periodo prolongado, la velocidad de su circulación venosa disminuye, por consiguiente, los factores de coagulación de la sangre pueden provocar que la sangre lenta se junte formando un coágulo de sangre o trombo. Esta afección se denomina trombosis venosa profunda o TVP. Los síntomas comunes de la TVP incluyen hinchazón de la pierna o de una vena de la pierna, dolor o sensibilidad en el área, incremento en la temperatura de la piel, y piel roja o pálida. En algunos casos de TVP, un coágulo de sangre puede desprenderse de una vena profunda y unirse al flujo sanguíneo. El coágulo viaja desde las venas profundas de la pierna a través de las venas del abdomen hasta el corazón. Y, finalmente, alojarse en la arteria pulmonar o en sus ramas, bloqueando el flujo sanguíneo hacia los pulmones. Esta afección, denominada embolia pulmonar, es muy grave y puede causar daños permanentes en una parte del pulmón. Si el coágulo es grande o si hay muchos coágulos, la embolia pulmonar también puede causar la muerte. Si presenta síntomas de embolia pulmonar, avísele a su médico o enfermera de inmediato. Estos síntomas pueden incluir falta de aliento, dolor agudo repentino en el pecho, sensación de debilidad o mareo, latidos del corazón rápidos o irregulares, o tos que produce sangre. Para ayudar a prevenir la trombosis venosa profunda y la embolia pulmonar, su médico puede ordenarle hacer lo siguiente: caminar periódicamente para evitar que la sangre se acumule en sus piernas; utilizar medias de compresión; y tomar medicamentos anticoagulantes.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

Frank Rothermel
Bernhardt & Rothermel
"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

K. Henderson

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
